    Hello everyone! I was wondering if it was safe to let my 4 week old chicks play outside in the their new coop during the day. They are not fully feather, but they have some. They are going nuts in the brooder, but I was worried about letting them play outside. Their coop is fully enclosed. The opening to the run is closed. Thanks!

    Oh yes, that's a great idea! I'm sure it's warm outside where you are, right? They would just love that, as long as there's food, water and shade, they should be fine!
